Divorce and Co-Parenting

Are you considering divorce or separation? Are you struggling to come to terms with a recent separation or divorce? Has your divorce or separation left you feeling anxious, angry or despondent? Are you worried about how to co-parent or are you concerned about how to help your children through the divorce?

Divorce is one of the most stressful and challenging life events. Divorce therapy can help you cope with the many emotional and mental tolls that often come with the separation or end of a marriage. While recovering from divorce can be difficult, it is possible to not only survive it but to come out of it stronger, happier and healthier.

If you find yourself feeling any of the following:

  • Unresolved hostility or resentment towards your former spouse
  • Upset about your partner’s infidelity, addiction or other destructive behaviors
  • Feeling that you or your former partner didn’t give your marriage a chance
  • Loneliness or worry that you won’t find love again
  • Guilt about things you did or didn’t do in your marriage
  • Grief or depression about the dissolution of your marriage and/or family unit
  • Stress or anxiety about financial burdens
  • Struggling to function at work, as a parent or in any other area of your life
  • Desiring to begin a new healthier relationship but not sure where or how to begin

… then divorce recovery therapy can help.

Working one-on-one with me, you can learn to accept and address feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, guilt or depression. If you leave these feelings unresolved, they can come out later in life and affect you in unexpected and negative ways. Therapy can help you process these emotions in a healthy way so that you can move past this moment of pain and sorrow and work to move forward in your life. Working together, I can help you find healthy coping strategies and positive outlets to deal with your emotions.

Divorce therapy can give you the power to reclaim your life by helping you to grieve the loss of your marriage and partner, so you can be healed and restored to live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
